they don't do that is because that's part of the ryan budget. i voted twice against the ryan budget therefore voted twice against those cuts in the morning to do a third time. republican leadership didn't want to keep that in the pocket. medicare advantage is going under the current plan. more people being covered under obama can do not. so don't come up with this -- there's no fact behind it. >> we are going to move to medicare. collins: very quickly, you can't take seven and $16 billion out of obamacare and have obamacare. ms. hochul think she can take the seven of $16 billion out and still have obamacare. ms. hochul, you can't do that if you're being very disingenuous with the viewers. to even suggest that. >> moving on to our next question for the congresswoman, negotiations over the reauthorization of the federal farm bill has been put on hold. critics say too much of the funding supports food stamps. do you support the farm bill and its current form? hochul: absolutely. the nature of congress, we're supposed to compromise, the senate passed the farm bill. bipartisan farm bill
represent. >> we're going to move on. dr. ryan budget. it's been a huge issue. you this question for you, congresswoman to give repeatedly sought to tie your opponent to the ryan budget. is a very successful strategy that you employed in the special election what you want to see jakarta occupy but given the fact that mitt romney while saying he is on the same page as congressman ryan has outlined plans including for medicare that are substantially different from what right has a post twice now and gendered you voted no on, is this a fair line of attack is. hochul: they are still trying to break the promise made to seniors in 1965 that would have a guarantee program that will pay been since her high school job that money should be waiting for us when we retired. it didn't work in 1960 of any idea of even turn part of it back to the insurance companies basically would jeopardize the solid promise we make your cities. so i understand why their water it down and backpedaling from what they had come and thank god we had an election last year to put the spotlight on whether -- [inaudible] and
republicans. this is a title but it's a lot of attention and thanks to mitt romney and paul ryan and got a lot of attention they literally rush to google after watching the convention and what's the matter with white people. so i want to think sam. [applause] but, you know, a lot of the commentary focused on the nostalgia republicans seem to feel for the golden age. as i describe in my title, and we can say that that is racism or sexism and some of it no doubt is. but i think it's important for us as progressives, those of us here that are progressive i hope we have some republicans, too. i think it's important to think about the golden age was and that there was a golden age for some americans and it coincided with my growing up. i felt like i was the last generation of people to whom the country really kept its promises. although with mitt romney and paul ryan got elected they would break the promise is since just under 55. we will have a chance to break promises to feel like it will be great. but, the golden age when we think about it it really was the result of the great depression and wor
but address the challenges we face, you have a ryan plan that not once, but twice my opponent voted for that continues to give additional benefits and cuts to the most fortunate americans, additional subsidies to large oil companies and companies shipping jobs overseas. and to pay for that it is asking seniors to take medicare, the medicare guarantee and turn it into a voucher which will cost seniors $6400 a year more. taking students and asking them to pay more for loans, cutting pell grants. it's taking middle class families and increasing their taxes -- >> moderator: i'm hearing you say the general sense of fairness, this 70/30 that you've come up with. congressman, you signed a pledge for grover norquist's americans for tax reform to never raise taxes, but now you're saying you would consider deficit reduction solutions that would include increased revenue. why the change? dold: well, certainly if you're going to lower rates or raise rates in one area, you've got to lower them in another. and i don't believe that raising taxes is necessarily the answer -- >> moderator: but you'r
is his birthday? >> halloween. thank you last night i saw the romney and paul ryan. >> night before even. [laughter] >> you did it with that? what happened to your wrist? >> q. did a better summary than i could give. >> i read demonic one year-ago. >> i get him on twitter. >> absolutely. thank you very much. >> if you don't mind. >> it is so hard to summarize the book right after you have written it. i read your review. you hit the main points. >> i like the book. >> it is in if one? >> you nailed it. you nailed it. >> it is so nice to meet you. >> i work with him at the firm. >> thank you. [laughter] >> is this for you? my handwriting is a much better when i am looking. [laughter] hello. >> where did i meet you before? >> it irritate foundation foundation -- inherited a foundation. >> i really want to two move on from the blacks and hispanics that is where they're supposed to be with the republican party. >> fdr through kennedy. >> fdr was very sneaky. >> nice to see again. >> i wanted to kiss it. i love her. the producer had not read the book. once i got there it was lucky that they co
. and if you read the plan you would see that. another point that you brought up is endorsed the ryan plan. no, i said they were plans. at least if they have a forward thinking and the courage to bring out various plans. which few people in your party on how we get social security secure, how we get medicare secure let's take these plans and have an adult discussion because we cannot continue the very near hitting the sand but there's been many things you've said that tom smith said we've never -- i've never said that. i am speaking for my plan, written plan, so please take a look at the plan and then you will see that i don't want to and social security for seniors. it emphatically states that seniors on it now i will do nothing. that will be protected. that's between the government and the them. that's protected. but all i had some plans that will save it for the long haul and i will end at that. you're very gracious with time. smith: de leggitt rebuttal time? >> moderator: how much you need? how about 15 seconds. smith: the most radical proposals in the congress and the senate any way that
watch out because she wants to change it. the ryan budget should vote for makes into the voucher program. that's one way to handle it but there are other ways. medicare needs some adjustments but fundamentally it's a program that works. what doesn't work is the very, very high cost of health care. that's a lot our we need to do to lower health care costs. obamnicare did start the process. it did start lowering health care cost. however, we need to do more. one of the things that we're primary here in central new york is electronic medical records. those are one ways we can avoid repetition and different tests and things like that. we can work with medical schools, physicians dementias more primary care physicians. also lower medical costs. we need to work together, a proposal of family physicians to make a medical home. these are all ideas that will help lower medical costs and save medicare. >> moderator: we're going to go to ann marie buerkle trained to thank you. of all of the distortions and the disingenuous advertising and ad campaigns that have gone on, it is dan maffei's position
. medicare, no vouchers. that's the -- that's the ryan plan that was in the budget that congressman ryan got through, turn medicare into a voucher program where seniors get a voucher, shop, and buy insurance. i'm dead against it. i oppose it as firmly as i could. the issue with medicare is the same as the issue with anthem or any other payment mechanism, hospital, and medical costs go up, and what we have to do is figure out a different payment, called the one in portland, one in louiston, and one in agus that where we are starting to pay for health and prevention in primary care rather than paying for procedures. i think that's the secret that we have to go to, and it's happening right now in maine, went we're already seeing results. i talked to the directer of the of the hospital in eastern maine, they are already seeing results from that way of handling health care to bring the cost down, and that's the way we're going to save medicare. >> moderator: mr. woods? woods: there's $10,000 wart of checks there from the attack pledge that didn't come through. medicare is critically -- dill: a pl
's the ryan plan in the budget that congressman ryan got through the house of representatives. it's a to turn it into a voucher program where they get a voucher and go out and shop and buy insurance. that's a terrible idea, dead against it, and i would oppose it as firmly as i could. the issue with medicare is the same with the issue with anthem or any other payment mechanism. hospital and medical costs are going up faster than inflation. what we have to do is figure out a different payment mechanism which we're working on here in maine under the affordable care act called accountable care organizations. there's one in portland through maine health, one in eastern maine, one in louistown, and one in augusta. we're paying for health, prevention, and primary care rather than paying procedures. that's the secret we have to go to, and it's happening right now in maps, and we're already seeing results. i talked to the directer of the hospital at eastern maine seeing results from that way of handling health care to bring the costs down, and that's the way we'll save medicare. >> moderator: all righ

york now. i am not ryan. today's brat to you by wmht. we want to welcome to the capital region as well as some of you watching on ws k. g g r. pbs affiliate. it's now time to welcome in our district, congressman chris gibson and mr. julian schriebman. [applause] i will be your moderator this weekend than during patriot the best reporters in the business, starting off from the times union, said bay. to jimmy, karen dewitt for new york state public radio and my cohost on new york now, casey seiler, editor for the times union. but taking your questions at home. we are allowing the chance to have a role in tonight's debate. if you want to ask a candidate something, do so by logging onto their facebook account. like us and ask away or on twitter are handlers@and why now -underscore pbs. we'll be taking regular e-mails. our address is nynow@wmht.org. each candidate will be given two minutes for the opening statement. after that we begin the formal questioning. each candidate will have 90 seconds to answer what the other can offer to a 452nd rebuttal. as a panelist was financing his clarifica
't be the -- the difference between tommy thompson and myself couldn't be more clear. he starts with supporting the ryan plan which has massive tax cuts for the very wealthy, $260,000 for the average millionaire like tommy. it pays for it with an increase in the middle income taxes. beyond that, what concerns me the most, and you talked earlier when you asked tommy about compromise. he signedded a pledge to a washington, d.c. lobbyist by the name of groar norquist that commits he'll never ask the wealthy to do more. that is wrong. in order for us to all have a fair shot, we all have to do our fair share. we need balance as we confront this very real and serious problem. >> moderator: following up, you'll get a chance to respond. let me follow-up. is it really, though, enough money there to make a dent in the nation's debt by raising taxes on the wealthy? you can argue there's a fairness issue. people believe that. some people believe that. is there enough there? is there enough there, okay, we're not going to fund wars again. do we get to where we need to get if we don't touch entitlements. baldwin: we can.
both looking over their shoulders. >> you mentioned paul ryan. of course i cannot go on without asking about him and the role that he has played in this congress and the degree to which his celebrity is embraced by other republicans who are presumably, as you say, as ambitious as the. he is the one who kind of got out. he is the one who rose above the others to be plucked as mitt romney's running mate. is everybody in the republican leaders have for that matter the republican ranks happy to see in there? is the resentment of him? to their respective as much as they are said to for his brain and his facility with numbers? >> they do respect him, and i think that there are those -- the people who resent and distressed paul ryan in the republican party are the members of the so-called tuesday group, which is the group, the waiting in member group of moderate republicans in the hand. they resented the imposition, the so-called ryan budget as the republican house budget. that budget, by the way, and brian's budget pancaking around for several years when he was the ranking member of the hous
's debate between congressman paul ryan and vice president joe biden, that should be a lot of fun. and i would have to say this ann coulter versus whoopi goldberg. i do have to say that was an extremely one-sided in every definition of the term because they would have to bleep out every response just like they did on the view so that would be unfair. what ann is really one word, courageous, truly courageous. [applause] she is willing to use her amazing satirical way to highlight the most important issues of our day. and go describes herself as a polemicist who like sister the pot and does not pretend to be impartial or balanced as our broadcasters do. that is a perfect way to describe it and she is a lawyer. she graduated with honors from cornell university and she is also graduate of the university of michigan loft school and syndicated columnist, author of eight "new york times" bestsellers which once again confirms the ladies of the view are the only ones who have not read her book. they can comment on her book. the latest book, "mugged" racial demagoguery from the seventies to obama
enjoyed that one. tonight's debate between paul ryan and the vice president joe biden should be a lot of fun. and ann versus will be goldberger. i have to say that would be extremely 1-sided in every definition because you wouldn't even hear will be. they would have to be out every response like they did last night on of you. that would be unfair. the entertainment factor aside what welle -- what ann is is truly courageous. willing to use her amazing satirical wit to highlight the most important issues of our day. describes herself as a polemicist who likes to stir the pot and does not pretend to be impartial balance as are broadcasters do. airbag ground has prepared her well. she is a lawyer who graduated with honors from cornell university and graduated university of michigan law school, syndicated columnist, author of eight new york times bestsellers which confirms that they're the only ones who haven't read their books. and demagoguery from -- "mugged: racial demagoguery from the seventies to obama" is in sight land timely. i have to say after reading that i felt so unburdened and
changed for our seniors right now, unless we repeal the affordable care act. ryan budget is not a voucher program. it is a needs-based government supported premium program. it has bipartisan support. the plan was, as you become eligible for medicare, you have choices. you can shop around for a medicare plan and have the government subsidize and provide premium support for you. but it is a needs-based. i think that the scare tactic for our seniors has been really reprehensible. >> moderator: he had to do that by law, right? anyone but ryan's members of the affordable care act, the affordable care act uses the $700 billion to fund the entitlement. what ryan did you put that money back into the medicare system to make it solvent and to make it healthier to the current seniors receiving medicare can be there for them. >> moderator: ursala rozum, you get 30 seconds. rozum: it shows how complicated and it's optional our health care system is. there are some cuts she supported. but i just don't medicare and social security to be solvent for people over 55 years old. i wanted to be solvent for fu
billion from medicare. not once but twice. in the ryan budget. the difference is that instead of using that to fill dot nut hole like we do d in the affordable care act, using that to make sure that the hospitals don't need so much reimbursement. they're not taking care of so many people in the emergency room that adopt have insurance. what did they do with the money? they gave kim kardashian another tax cut. they gave the wealth another tax cut on top of the bush tax cut. that's what they did with the $716. i strength medicare and never cut one sometime of benefit. the same money they took out of medicare the same money they were going give another tax consult to the wealthy. that's another big difference. akin: yes, what claire is saying she has it wrong. the $716 billion that the republicans put in our medicare proposal stayed in medicare. we department take it out and put it put somewhere else. and that's just factually not correct. >> moderator: congressman? this question from the audience will start with you, what is your policy and your position about the israeli-iran situation?
one of the reason i voted against the paul ryan budget. it changes in medicare i didn't believe was in the best interest of montana senior. my best interest i will always vote, i never vote to prizetize social security or medicare. i believe that they are sound and i believe that they are for for anybody on it now or going to be on it soon. >> moderator: senator tester. tester: in twine the record is clear. you voted to make it to a voucher system. congressman ryan bill. you have been on the platform before. talk abouting what you will never do. for instance, a few years back you talked about never taking pay raise. i believe last count probably five, so can we believe you this time? are you going continue do things like vote to make medicare in to a voucher system. rehberg: it's obviously you'll do anything to keep your job. [inaudible] i have never voted for a pay raise. you have. you voted for a pay raise just several months ago in the united states senate. and i never have voted for a pay raise. and i don't prospective the privatization of social security for anybody on it o
it to pick out people who bowl and say bowlers made paul ryan fine but what if you are doing is mailing letters to soldiers on active duty with the game of challenging them, that is a crime according to bobby kennedy. and i have to say, while al gore grabbed his ankles in 2000 after he read, personally read my story that was breaking in england. this was before the supreme court ruled that thousands of like people were banished from the voter rolls in florida and after john kerry med -- read my book armed madhouse, he said that is why they lost the election and one of the last bills he introduced to make the stuck illegal on its face. right now you have to prove that it's racially biased. they are going after old jewish ladies and going after native americans. one of their big targets in the south. they say, we are just trying to look for the fraudulent voter. oh yeah, the fraudulent voter. bad as the new red scare. that is the new sleeper cell, fraudulent voter. there could be a fraudulent voter in this room. more likely there would be a 90-foot tarantula in this room because in the la
that one. [applause] tonight's debate between congressman paul ryan and the vice president biden, that should be a lot of fun. check in next week. [applause] i would have to see three is ann coulter versus whoopi goldberg. [laughter] that's extremely one sided in every definition of the term because you would not hear whoopi beeping out every response like they did last time ann was on "the view" which is unfair. the entertainment factor aside, ann is one word, "courageous," truly courageous, willing to use her amazing wit to highlight important issues of our day and describe herself as a to lem cyst who stirs the pot. her background prepared her well. she's a lawyer. she graduated from honors from cornell, graduate of university michigan law school, a columnist, author of eight "new york times" best sellers, confirming the ladies of "the view" are the only ones who have not read the books, they can't comment on them. "mugged," that book is insightful and i encourage everybody to read it. permly, after reading it, i felt so unburdened and liberated i'm going to go ahead and get r
but if you look at what we have had in past congress, congress has had a challenge and we have a ryan planned that not once but twice my opponent voted for that continues to give additional benefits and cuts to the most fortunate americans additional subsidies to large oil companies and companies shipping jobs overseas and to pay for that, it is asking seniors to take medicare and the medicare guarantee and turn it into a voucher which will cost seniors $6400 more year and taking students and asking them to pay more for student loans and cutting pell grants. sticking middle-class families and putting an average increase on their taxes by at least $1300. >> moderator: what i'm hearing you say is a general sense of fairness the 70/30. congressman two years ago before you are elected to congress he signed a pledge for grover norquist's americans for tax reform to never raise taxes but you would consider deficit reduction solutions that would include increased revenue. why the change? subor it talks about if you're going to
. in 2009 rolled around they had huge spike in sales when obama was nag rated and we all know paul ryan reads it, rick is a fan. there's lots and lots of -- a whole ought to be anyway a whole atlas slugged caucus in the house of representatives. i'm forever seeing young people on the subway in washington, d.c., sitting down and reading. i had to read it, okay. so in 2009 i went out and got a copy and read it. i read the whole thing. the first thing i want to to say is never read it before going to bed. [laughter] yeah. "i am rand" contempt for humanity is so toxic and poi poison it's difficult to take. but let's see, the most fascinating thing about the book a lot of my idea for "pity the billionaire: the hard-times swindle and the unlikely comeback of the right come from. it's a deliberate inversion of the standard story in the 1930s. an america is that falling apart and in to a great depression. instead being caused by wall street or whatever you want to point to as the cause of the cross-appeal great depression, the gold standard. it's all caused by government. right. government meta
